Justine’s Secret House Austin Engagement Session – Isabel and Devin
We photographed Isabel and Devin’s engagement session at Justine’s Secret House here in Austin. They wanted cozy and romantic space. This venue is one of our favorite Austin wedding venues and we knew it would be perfect. After filling out our questionnaire they let us know they wanted a session that had the vibe and style of the movie “Call me by your name.” Bradley and I just finished watching this movie recently and were thrilled! The cinematography was brilliant and the movie was absolutely breathtaking. The love story is the best depiction of love.
Here is the story of how Devin and Isabel met.
Devin and Isabel met as complete strangers at an Austin coffee shop. The place was packed when Isabel arrived and she asked if she could sit at Devin’s larger table. As they continued to work individually they began to chat about bits and pieces of their lives. Devin was moving to Dallas soon for med school. Isabel was waiting on an interview for a dream job in San Francisco. After 2 hours of very enjoyable conversation Isabel began to pack up her things. She had to head to a class she was teaching that evening. He charmingly wished her the best and Isabel left with a lingering curiosity as to why he hadn’t asked for her number. She brushed it off as she quickly reasoned with it being the fact that they would soon be living in two different cities.
Later she found out that he planned on asking for her contact info in 15 minutes but she abruptly left in 10. This left him unprepared and frazzled. Devin was filled with regret a few minutes later and ran outside pacing the streets to find her. She was long gone. Despite some friends cautions he contacted her through LinkedIn as he had her name and place of employment. The next three weeks they crammed as much time together as they could. They knew they were meant to be together after their first date.
